Rockstar Games Auto-Updater issues

#11blastmaster2k2Posted 6/1/2012 5:34:59 PM
It doesn't work for me, the game launches, then it just says initializing...forever as far as I can tell. Now it just crashed. They need to fix this pronto.

I cant play the damn game. I have retail copy, install the entire game, it prompts for updater, it loads update, then when that finishes, it attempts another. This auto updater then says idle, and it closes itself..

It says this over and over, wont run the game no matter what. Tried disabliing antivirus and firewall. Even uninstalled the entire game and repeated everyting over a second time. I have spent about two hours just trying to install the damned game...and still cant play.

Holy freaking ducks eating nuts this game will not start. smh Now the initializing screen won't even come up. This is my first Rockstar game and will probably be my last.

they should put the patch files so we can manually update the game since the auto updater sucks...I have been trying to play this game since I drove out the store I installed like 4 times now with no luck trying different ways Rockstar needs to put more tools out there so we can play for what we paid for...I have retail version and all the installs go smooth but all goes ballistic when the auto updater goes on, there nothing happens and no can play since the game needs a first time patch that I am not able to get nowhere...This needs a fix ASAP and they should enable .net framework to v4 ...new game with old specs always bring bad luck.

A guy on the steam forums found a fix apparently. Not guaranteed but worth a shot.

Was just about to post that too, though it didn't work for me.

General consensus on any forums I've checked seems to be none of this works. This is getting boring, glad I waited for the PC version...

Moving and renaming the folder like the guy said on Steam worked for me. ...not sure why it didn't work the first time I tried it.

Try selective startup on your pc, msconfig, disable everything from starting up thats not windows required.. prolly some software on your side not agreeing with it. if it works, just enable a couple at a time until the problem happens again.. then you know where the conflict is coming from.. just google for msconfig if you need help with it
